SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - A 64-year-old Scottsbluff man has been arrested in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found in an apartment earlier this week.

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2hW2otx ) Lucio P. Munoz was arrested Wednesday in Bradley, Illinois, after he was charged on suspicion of first-degree murder in an arrest warrant.

The body of 48-year-old Melissa May was found Tuesday morning after officers went to check on her welfare.

Authorities say they believe Munoz used a knife to kill May on Dec. 31.

Munoz is being held in lieu of $2 million bond.
